A beautiful veranda complete with infinity pool overlooks the 'Big Flower' vineyard which provides couples with the perfect sunset views with which to enjoy a glass or two. The rooms are...

We cannot reccomend Sugarbird highly enough! The peaceful and stunning location, the breathtaking views, the attentive staff for whom no request is too much trouble, the lovely pool area, the two adorable resident cats! Everything about this place is amazing. If you get a chance stay in room 4 which has glorious views over the valley and a private terrace...

There was nothing we would like to see changed about this beautiful manor. The view of the mountains from our room was breathtaking. We really enjoyed walking amongst the protea growing areas. Breakfast was excellent and made to order. Also, the staff was great- when I requested an ironing board and iron, the lovely woman at reception instead offered to...

We will definitely be back to Sugarbird. We stayed three nights and what a lovely place sitting on a hill on a protea farm! Very private, very quiet. We stayed in one of they smaller rooms. Small room, but clean and very comfortable. Wonderful breakfast...everything you would want.

Stayed just one night on business. Would love to return with my family to experience this beautiful guesthouse and the surrounding winelands. A beautiful view from the upstairs rooms and the pool deck lends itself to long tranquil afternoons sipping on local wines and in the winter there is a fireplace in the lounge to keep warm around. Exceptional service...
